with free birth control obviously. as for paul ryan, he just can't believe urban americans managed to leave their sad, cramped apartments and tenments and made the long trek to the voting booth. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> apparently mr. ryan forgot his opponents were giving out free birth control. should have seen that coming. now, some in the gop are trying to escape this whirling vortex of deep denial and blame, especially those looking to run in 2016. louisiana governor bobby jindal was out at a mike within hours. >> i absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. i don't think that represents where we are as a party and where we're going as a party. >> well, into which dimension the party is headed still remains very much up for question. let's get right to our panel. here in new york joy reid is the managing editor of thegrio.com. msnbc contributor ari melber is a columnist for "the nation." and in washington m
. remember that at the republican convention, paul ryan talked about or tried to blame president obama for the closing of the gm plant in janesville. last night, janesville voted for obama and biden over their own hometown candidate. >> isn't that something? >> and the surrounding county voted 60% for obama and biden. >> john nichols, great to have you with us tonight. thanks so much. >>> did the war on women cost the gop the election? president of the national organization for women, terry o'neill, weighs in on that next. >>> then, ballots and bigotry. find out what the republicans need to understand if they want to take back the white house some day. the new political reality and americans' demographics, next. >>> this is what winning feels like. last night, america put a stop to an extreme right-wing agenda. we stopped planned parenthood from being defunded. we stopped roe v. wade from being overturned. we stopped health care reform from being repealed. that's a lot, isn't it? the gop's radical platform was clearly rejected and women had a major hand in making sure the clock on prog
. if there is anybody that comes across as the big loser of this election season, it's not mitt romney or paul ryan it has got to be karl rove. he prides himself as being the smartest man in american politics. he did get george bushel elected as governor and george bush elected as president but then he bragged about -- he was going to create the permanent republican majority and he sold that crap in the white house, and people believed him. did it work? hum, i don't think so. >> yeah how did that work? >> i don't think john mccain got elected, did he? >> no, i don't remember him winning. >> and i don't remember this guy -- mitt romney getting elected either. so then karl rove comes up with this american cross roads idea. of course the supreme court gave him a big give in citizens united, so they could raise this millions and millions and millions of dollars, and support all right-wing candidates and throw them into senate races, house races and the presidential race. and then karl rove goes on and some of the stuff he said -- he was so wrong. it's unbelievable. the "washington post
're on with fred barnes of the "weekly standard." caller: bob. yes, you said that paul ryan is a good candidate for the future? the guy couldn't even tell the truth about his marathon run, and then he takes a tour of a soup kitchen, and he cleans up after the place is closed. romney, i mean, my god the guy lied throughout campaign, and you would actually support a guy who lies to the american people about jobs going to china with the jeep? host: how did paul ryan do on the campaign trail? guest: well, i thought he did extremely well and i thought he flubbed that news about the marathon but if he did it in the time he said he would be on a marathon-running circuit. that was just a mistake. he hadn't run it in about is 1 -- in about 11-12 years. i know paul ryan. paul ryan is not a liar. and with mitt romney, the whole question about the jeeps, there's a dispute whether chrysler, which owns jeeps jeep is going to have to go to italy. there's a story about that. on the china issue overall for romney, that was an issue that didn't work. there are issues that poll well, but when you try to rely on t
. now, that's a big paul ryan line. and this is a fantasy. the fact of the matter is, we have a government in this country that does some things. and most of what mitt romney's objecting to is government. >> was there a racial component here? and i ask that question, because mitt romney is talking about giving more tax breaks to the wealthiest americans, but president obama can't have a plan for young people or african-americans or hispanics? how else do you read it? >> well, it's the same -- look, paul ryan did an interview just this week where he was talking about the urban areas voting in a certain way. and it seems that this is the fantasy, the delusion that they've decided to carry on. that they didn't lose because their ideas were bad, day didn't lose because they made mistakes. in fact, in this call, mitt romney complimented his campaign. they lost because somehow the 47% was given so many gifts that it grew into 51%. >> does it make it harder for the republican party to patch up their image and their vision for the future when they are going to be dogged by comments li
blue collar and older whites. even with paul ryan on the ticket, a 60% of seniors voted for romney. in the long run, i think those red states are problematic for democrats. look at north carolina. in north carolina or virginia, obama's numbers among blue- collar whites are unbelievably low. they are in the high-20's or 30's. in the long run, i do think there is this pattern. the sun belt will be more important than the west about. they do have the incredible ability to hang on to -- the shift will be to states that have the same social forces of rising diversity and rising education levels. >> we have a slight disagreement. obama did well among these groups in 2008. democrats do well among white blue-collar voters in the midwest. there are union presidents and other things that give them a boost. there is a slight fracture of the automobile bailout. ohio did not look that different. i think of no bailout might have helped a bit around the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperfor
the solution is get rid of paul ryan. >> the republican party has to rethink strategy. in hind sight, marco rubio would have been the best choice to run with mitt romney. it's not a knock on paul ryan. he did very well. it's just that the gop needs to send a powerful signal to hispanic voters that the party respects them. >> he thinks it's about signals. he think it's about having a spanish name on the ballot. you don't have to do anything on policy. >> and you don't have to do anything on tone. i think mark got to a really good point. you have this phenomenon happen in the conservative movement where their media culture has taken over their political culture. the left has a media culture too but it doesn't instruct the party how to behave. but people like bill o'reilly and rush limbaugh, they set the tone and the tea party enforces that within the political space. they expect and demand even marco rubio had to be against the dream act. he had to use term like illegals. you have to get up to the edge of top radio speak in order to fit in. just having somebody with an "o" at the end of their
rubio would have been the best choice to run with mitt romney. it's not a knock on congressman paul ryan he did very well. it's just that the g.o.p. knees to send a powerful signal to g.o.p. voters that respect them. they cast approximately 11 million ballots yesterday. obama beat romney by less than 3 million in the popular vote. the good news for the republics is that the pressure is now on president obama and the democrats. if the economy doesn't improve dramatically over the next four years, the democratic party will evaporate. simple as that what is more complicated is the mind set of the american people. as i reported last night during the election coverage about half of all american homes are now receiving some kind of government entitlement. some earned, some not. so any effort to reform or cut back on entitlements is a tough sell. but it's going to have to be done. president obama won because he effectively put together a coalition of the willing. voters who had something to gain by keeping him in office. but with the nation heading towards financial insolvency, possible bankrup
is insanity. this is another quote from the article. running mate paul ryan seemed genuinely shocked. ryan's wife jana also was shaken and cried softly. shocked? do they live in a bubble? do they live in an alternate reality where they are right all the time, and they're not attached to actual reality? >> they had the model of the electorate where independents would come their way. and there was a base election. everything they bought into, they didn't see it on election day. also people were not satisfied with president obama backers. even those who were not thrilled for the last four years they came out for the president. >> you followed the campaign. were you surprised? >> i expected it to be closer in the electorate college, but it was a close race. >> cenk: congressman cohen i see politician who is want to win and have overconfidence, but have you seen anything of this magnitude where someone is clearly down in the polls going in and then literally--one adviser said he was shellshocked that he lost. >> that's hard to fathom, but it does show that they live in a bubble. there is that m
is talking about giving more tax breaks. >> paul ryan did an interview just this week where he was talking about the urban areas voting in a certain way. it seems that this is the fantasy, the delusion they've decided to carry on. they doesn't lose because their ideas were bad, they doesn't lose because of mistakes, they lost because somehow the 47% was given so many gifts that it dwru into -- got into 51%. >> they are going to be dogged by comments like this. it's not inclusive. how. >> we have republicans across the country saying we have to reconnect and connect with people young. dollar this gave them. >> john nichols, great to you have with us tonight. thanks so much. >> there's a lot more coming up in the next half hour of "the ed show." >> in my own personal experience, it was very important for me to elect young people and encourage people to come and when they come here to give them opportunity to serve. >> 2012 is the year of the woman in congress. tonight north dakota's first female senator heidi highcamp joins me exclues i. >> hons ka'. >> ohio republicans are already trying to
differently. there rummy and paul ryan are good man and the leaders. i want to wish them and their families well. the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama and they have reelected the putt -- a republican majority. there is a mandate in yesterday's results and a mandate to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges will face as a nation. a message today is not one of confrontation but one of conviction. in the weeks and months ahead we face a series of tremendous challenges and opportunities. there is the fiscal cliff. a combination of spending cuts and tax increases mandated by law. congress will be asked to raise the nation's debt ceiling. legislation will be needed to keep the government running as a continuing resolution under which we are currently operating. amid this short-term hurdles we face the greatest challenge of all. a massive debt that is smothering growth and exceeding the entire size of our economy. there will be many who will say that we should confront the first of these challenges by letting the tax rates expire and pushing
paul ryan's role in this campaign and how that role was shifted or even erased halfway through. >> yeah. i thought that was -- that was symbolic of the state of the big debate and what both campaigns knew americans to believe about it. republicans were very, very excited to have a large philosophical debate and the appointment of paul ryan as vice presidential candidate when it was kind of a moment when they really seemed to think that they were going to get it. >> john: i thought so. >> paul ryan spent a week where he would talk about this debate. going to have the debate. when does the debate start? let's do it. it was good-bye paul ryan. >> john: why was that, jonathan? they didn't get the bounce in the polls because of his appointment or because of the stench comments? >> i think it was the fact that they never wanted to have the debate. >> john: really. >> they knew the debate was bad for them. i think they needed paul ryan on board. romney liked paul ryan but the campaign -- the only campaign that gave
but to say paul ryan is going to bring forth a solution to the fix, we're going to gather votes for it. i guarantee you you'll have a democratic substitute and if you can get enough republicans to vote for it, terrific. >> if only the americans can see the look of befudslement and confusion when newt gingrich says things like no house republican should be bamboozled into this idea. bamboozled into this idea that the president just won re-election and the senate is still firmly in democratic hands. >> right. what he's basically saying is, to rank and file republicans vote with your district and forget about the phone call that john boehner had with all of you folks saying get in line, we actually have to have a record to run on in 2014. we can't be obstructionists anymore. the american people have spoken in the election, let's do something. newt gingrich, former speaker of the house, failed presidential candidate, giving advice to the republican party, i would advise the republican party to take that with a huge salt lick. >> yeah. >> ashley, you were on the trail covering romney and there
it, but that and what paul ryan say they continue to have the sort of racism that was underlying the entire campaign. paul ryan saying they won because of urban areas? the president didn't win just in urban areas. it's just so insulting. it's just whining and excuse making. >> cry babies, sore losers. >> stephanie: thank you sean hannity. really that was stunning to me and doubling down on the 47% comment. it's so bitter and its insulting. you know, we have free stuff. that's exactly what rush limbaugh said, oey. more on the press conference in a moment. kids carbonite is how we keep this whole thing running around here. life can be unpredictable. roland back in new york, he's still putting his ceiling back together. he lost everything in his computer. that would be it for sexy liberal incorporated, my friend. power outage, virus you don't even have to live in a storm area. carbonite backs up everything, it's not if but when you have a computer disaster of some sort. i had a chardonnay-related incident, just saying. once you have carbonite you don't have to worry about backing ev

and paul ryan had won, they'd say they have a mandate r for imposing the ryan romney budget. the president talked about this issue. he says we need to ask higher income individuals to pay more to generate revenue, as part of the solution. part of the solution along with cuts, to reducing the deficit, so it's not as if this hasn't been an important part of the campaign argument. so we'll have to see how this goes. >> i'll look forward the to talking to you more about it. you know what investors are telling me, you got to go about four times bigger. >> i think the framework of the bipartisan commission is right and it would be great if our republican colleagues would adopt that. people like grover norquist have said that's just a subterfuge to raise taxes on the american people when in fact, it's a balanced approach to getting the job done. >> still to come, the keys to victory. how the president won and the voters who turned against the republican party. tonight, there are warning signs for both sides. john king at the magic wall. the man does not sleep. he is back. plus, after last night,
by an outlined by paul ryan. the important thing to understand is the american people understood that choice, and they voted for barack obama. they also voted for two more democratic senators. the senate will be much more progressive than it was in the last senate. in the states, the elected at least six democratic governors, potentially a seventh for washington state. they shifted state legislature the state of maine going from a republican-controlled legislature to a very democratic legislature. new york state, legislative shipped along with many others. the bottom line, in this election that was frank in many ways as a choice of austerity, people rejected it. it is very important that it be understood that this was not a to close to call election. president obama has a mandate from the american people to push back against a right-wing economic. he must. the problem is, i am not sure he will do that. i'm not sure he will do that as efficiently. i am most concerned perhaps that progressives will not fully recognize that. that they have a power to make real demand on this president. i was in

is that the senate is doable. it is eric cantor -- you know who could play tremendous role is paul ryan. he is a champion of the conservative side of the party, but his voting record shows that he will vote for smart compromises. he will moderate his views. and he is someone who could really sell a deal to the republican right. the question is, is this the first step that he was to take toward being the nominee, cutting a deal with obama? or does he want to be the champion of, no way, we will stick with the ryan budget to the last man? >>, speaking of all right for a second, the most famous republicans in the house -- speaking of paul reihan for a setting, the most famous republicans in the house, paul ryan did all right on site. but a couple of the others, michelle bachmann had close race. alan west looks like he is going to lose. some really close contest for some well-known candidates. >> we have seen this in a couple of cycles in a row with michelle bachmann. she is learning that acting the way she does is great for fund- raising, but it is also great for her opponents fundraising, too.
should we have picked mitt romney, well you did. should he have picked paul ryan? absolutely, he's a smart political figure and has a lot to taufer party and resonated well with the electorate. so all of that second guessing is typical washington inside crazeness. you need to hunker down and look at your ground game and your organization and your message and mess jers. we need mess jers who look like me. we need mess jers who are hispanic, asian american, women cross section of folks who represent communities all across the country. host: your successor of the republican national committee may seek a second term as chair of the party. what are you hearing? guest: i've heard people say that and that's a decision he will make on his own. and the party will judge whether losing two senate seats and the presidential and not much of a ground game is worthy of a reelection. host: a landslide loss for big money. voters ignored most of the outside ads but the danger of unlimited spending remains and a lot of focus on american cross roads and the money spenlt by carl rove. those people sh

all, paul ryan, a tea party favorite, couldn't deliver his own state of wisconsin for his ticket. he will return to his house seat to serve an eighth term. many tea party members kept their house seats as well but they didn't increase their ranks on tuesday, and they lost two very winnable senate races. it's a pretty big contrast to the splash they made in the 2010 midterm elections and the muscle they flexed throughout the prime aries. here's gary tuchman. >> reporter: this is not the scene most supporters of the tea party envisioned or desired. barack obama was supposed to be a one term president. >> liberty, yes. obama care, no. liberty, yes. obama care, no. >> reporter: a primary mission of the tea party, get the government out of people's lives. there was even an african-american led chapter in south-central l.a. complete with a sign at one rally that read tea party supports mlk's dream. >> i see today that fidel castro likes obama care but we don't like obama care. doesn't that kind of tell you something? >> reporter: there was a lot of passion but also problems. there was chri
